Cliftonville from the Air , 31st August 1954


This photograph was emailed to me today by Charles Bates, it is Cliftonville from the air on 31st August 1954. It is one of those pictures you can spend all evening maginfying.
Charles is enquiring for any information regarding the Tiger Moth that crashed landed in the Sea off Foreness Point in the 1950's. The Tiger Moth was under tow by the "Vagabond" when it sank off Palm Bay. The "Vagabond" was skippered by that old maritime scallywag Taffy Rooke, who some reader may remember with affection.
If any readers have recollections of either , all comments are welcome.

Didn't realise that Dane Mount where I used to live (and Dane Gardens) had older houses on the site
